What should I do now to improve my skills?... What videos will help my Endgame?... Which Mentor Courses will make me a better strategist? At my level, should I be playing more - or studying more?...

... Sound familiar? Well, wonder no longer:

Study Plans bring uncertainty and aimlessness to an end, charting a clear path to chess improvement! Let's face it: There is a huge wealth of information & learning tools on Chess.com, and these plans will help you navigate through it, with two goals:

  • to reveal the very best material for your current skill level, and...
  • to unify that content so that diverse yet complementary activities reinforce each other for high-impact learning and fast improvement!

          For those waiting for the Advanced Plans (which is evidently many of you!), I have been running thematic tournaments featuring some of the opening systems suggested by IM Daniel Rensch. While you're waiting, you can train yourselves on these opening systems, in order to ensure that you are in fact ready for these Advanced Study Plans when they eventually arrive. Wink The Ruy Lopez Marshall Attack tournament is currently in registration.
